Following his side’s 4-1 penalty shootout win over Police in the round of 16 of the Uganda Cup George Ssemwogerere has set sights on an ambitious Uganda Cup glory as Express FC head coach.
The former Cranes and Express defender replaced Kefa Kisala at the helms of the Wankululuku outfit believes his beleaguered troops have a chance to go on and claim their 11th Uganda Cup trophy.
“Every coach has a target which is to win trophies, I am confident that we can go all the way and win the Uganda Cup since the opponents left in the competition are not strong.”
“I have been here before as a coach and it is a matter of organising ourselves. I know once the boys master the system, it will be the opponents to change to our system not us.”
Ssemwogerere also hailed his players perfecting their game plan and admitted that they have been training penalties.
“We executed well our game plan which was to defend well and attack, though we had some weak links in the midfield but we did manage to create chances and generally the boys performed well. When we reached the shoot outs, I definitely knew it that we were to advance since I am the best penalty taker in the country and we have been training them.” Stated Ssemwogerere.
Express FC will now await a quarterfinal draw to know their next opponents. The other quarterfinalists are Vipers SC, Bright Stars, Kyetume FC, Proline FC, BUL FC, Nebbi Central and Wakiso Giants.
